. earnings were down considerably from last year thanks to a tax settlement a year ago. but the results were well above wall street estimates, thanks to a double digit jump in revenues. driving that growth was an increase in deliveries of commercial planes. the 737 remains the driver, with 105 planes delivered. the 777 also helped, as did the 23 dreamliners handed to customers last quarter, but those planes can't fly right now. u.s. and japanese regulators have grounded the 787 due to concerns about its lithium batteries overheating and catching fire. today boeing management said it is making good progress in finding the cause. peter arment is the aerospace analyst at investment firm sterne agee. >> tom: boeing still plans to ramp up production of that dreamliner, triple the number it dlivers and takes payment f. how confident are you it can stick with that? >> we're very confident. i mean, yes, there is no question there is headline risk with the 787. i think that there is concerns about what the ultimate solution will be, or root cause. but everything we have seen, it is a battery defect.
